How to Bet on MLB Games
You can wager on MLB games in two standards ways: (1) moneyline; and (2) total runs, or Over/Under.
On a moneyline bet, you simply pick the team you think will win, and if they prove victorious, you win the bet based on odds, such as +135 ($135 wins on a $100 wager).
If you bet the total runs, you are choosing whether one or both teams will score over or under a certain number.
You can also bet the run line, where you wager on the live scoring of the game based on what’s happening in the game as it occurs (as in BetMGM’s live sports betting app).
Bettors can also wager on “First 5,” where you pick which team will lead after five innings. Or you can also seek prop bets, like which team will win the first inning, and so on. Check your sportsbook for prop bets available for your baseball betting.

What Are MLB Futures Bets?
A futures bet is any wager on an event or series or anything else (like an award) that will happen in the future. Sportsbooks will give you odds on many futures markets, like winning the World Series, pennant, division, or even winning a certain number of games.
Futures can also be special wagers like picking the World Series matchup (Padres vs. Astros, for example). If that matchup occurs, you can win no matter which team ends up winning the title. Most sports betting apps will list dozens of futures bets for MLB.
San Diego Padres World Series Odds FAQs
California sportsbooks use odds based on a $100 wager for a futures bet like World Series winner. For example, +200 is the same as 2-to-1, meaning a $100 bet that wins would pay out $200. So, +1000 would net you $1,000 on a $100 bet.
Most sportsbooks list their World Series odds on the MLB page in the “Team Futures” section. There, you should find odds for the World Series, as well as division winners and pennant winners.
Not as often as Super Bowl odds in the NFL, for example, as there are so many more games played in MLB so lines don’t really shift after individual games. More so, World Series odds will shift due to injuries, trades, or larger winning/losing trends. For instance, the Los Angeles Angels’ odds tanked after their 14-game losing streak in May and June.
